Dutch citizen Aydin C., who is accused of assaulting and blackmailing multiple girls, has written an open letter in English claiming that he is innocent and has become a target in an orchestrated hate campaign. Aydin C. sent his open letter to Dutch news network RTL Nieuws (Dutch language).
One of Aydin C.’s alleged victims was Amanda Todd, who in 2012 committed suicide at the age of 15. Aydin C. is currently in detention and awaiting trial in the Netherlands. On Friday, February 13, his pre-trial detention will be subject of court proceedings (Dutch language).
Aydin C.’s lawyer Christian van Dijk has confirmed that the letter is indeed coming from Aydin C.:
#amandatodd The letter of Aydin C. is original and was received by me in prison.
